Second to last swim outdoors

The YMCA kept their 50 meter pool open longer due to the Riverplex pool being out of commission and I’ve taken advantage. I get one more swim there tomorrow.

Back: ok..almost forgot about it, but I had a couple of reminders in the pool and later.

Note: late start as I drove there without my swim bag (which had my suit)

2000 meters: 1200 was from 3 x (100 side, 100 crawl, 100 back, 100 crawl)

Then 300 drill/swim

500 in 10:50. Not great but ok; under 11 is good for me. Still, I should be doing 2:05, not 2:10 per 100.

Then came a walk: 15:56 for the mostly grass/gravel/footpath portion, then a much slower mile on single track (lots of elevation gain for a short trail) 42:03 for 2.2 miles.

Note: I saw 2 deer driving there, and 3 while on the trail. The trail portion was 22:30. Minor tugs on the trail part.

Sort of fatigued

Started PT at 5:30 AM, finished at about 7:45. What made this long is that mixed in 10 sets of 10 flat push ups with the PT before making it to the pull up bar.

8 sets 0f 5 partial to a few complete pull ups, then 2 negatives (with rest between)

Walk: 2.1 at 12:31 per mile

downstairs at 7:10 for:

deadlifts: 10 x 134, 10 x 184 low, 10 x 250 4 inch

bench: 10 x 134,3 sets of 5 x 154 (legs up)

curls: 3 sets of 10

high incline 3 sets of 10 x 94

Later: lunch walk of 1.02 (I vary the course every time)


Now to master downhill walking and get better at pull ups.
